Got some $$$ to burn

I just rec. my quarter ending profit share from my store and have about... well I am going to spend some of it to buy a Turbo. I have looked at some of the kits that are around the market and am looking at a local speed shop to buy from and have them install it. The name of the company is Godspeed and there web site is www.godspeedinc.com They quoted me 4900 to install a XS kit and do all the tuning and another 450 to install a new clutch. What I want to know is, is there anyone on the site who has heard of the company and has anthing good/ bad to say and if the $ is right?. The kit is ordered from XS so thats not an issue, but the quality and the craftmanship of the shop is what worries me being that 5350 is a lot of $$$$ regardless of what im spending it on. Any and all input is greatly app. thanks in advance thumbsup

dont buy XS, horrible customer relations and service... and at 5000+ bucks, you want good customer relations.

they would warrant their own workmanship...

I was leaning twards SF at first but Dan the man who owns and operates the company said they work with XS, but I could go w/ who ever I wanted. He sug XS cause they get a discount cause he is a dist. for them.
